Herbaceous Hybrid Group; Mid to Mid-late flowering; Single to Semi-double, petals of distinctly hybrid sheen, mid pink with a measure of mauve, sets it apart from the more common warm toned colors in plants of the same season. This plant represents a rare occurrence, in our experience, of marked hybrid characteristics expressed in progeny of a backcross of Saunders Lobata of Perry F1 Hybrid pollen on Lactiflora cultivars. Also, most stems have one or two sidebuds, substantially extending the flowering season. The plant is medium height (32 inches), generally upright. Polar Star x Cytherea, first bloomed about 1992, presumed triploid, no seeds observed; pollen not tried to date. Number H1888. Named for grandmother of Lavon Hollingsworth.
